by the time he will need more power GTX 300 series and ati 5800 series will be out.
Um his card is DEAD. So he needs a card. Should he buy an el cheapo card and wait? I know I would not be happy doing that even for a month.
+1 to the 4870 from me.
My 2 favorite games at the moment Grid and COD4 love the 4870 as much as I do.
1680x1050 with 4xAA and all maxed out has been an absolute treat!
I heavily play tested in Bioshock DX10, FEAR, COJ, HL2:EP2 and Race07 and the card is a champ in those as well. Looks as good as it did on my 8800GT only smoother at higher settings.
Bargain at $289 Canadian.
